Downstairs / Main Gallery:
a hard place

Curated by Gundula Schmitz (Laura Mars Gallery) and Gary Farrelly

Featured artists:

Chris Dreier (DE), Christine Weber (DE), Cunningham Architects (TX), Dirk Krecker (DE), EVOL (DE), Gary Farrelly (IRE/BE), Julia Zinnbauer (DE), Laure Catugier (DE/FR), Matias Bechtold (DE), Oisin Byrne (IRE/UK), Pádraic E. Moore (IRE/BE), ScAle Architects (IT) and Tannhäuser Tor (Alekos Hofstetter (DE) & Florian Göpfert (DE).
A hard place brings together work by artists and architects from Germany, Ireland, France and Italy as well as a piece by Dallas’s Cunningham Architects produced especially for the show.  A unifying concern in the work is the legacy of post-war modernist architecture. The artists of a hard place employ highly divergent strategies across a wide variety of media to explore the theme. The exhibition includes video art, photography, drawing, painting, textiles, sculpture, sound recordings and the written word.

500x is kicking off the new season with the 2017 annual members show.  This exhibition will be showcasing a variety of content and style that is representative of our members.  We will also be welcoming the addition of several new members to 500x Gallery. As the oldest artist run co-op in Texas, the idea of collaboration, finding fresh talent and building community is what this current group hopes to continue to foster. Come out and help us kick off the 2017 season!
